Nancy Hands is my go to restaurant for great Irish food with an amazing atmosphere, the staff are so friendly and the cool antiques like the old trinity college staircase gives the place real history! Simply a must visit if you come to Dublin!

We just wanted to eat something, and they were very kind. The food were the nacho's, hand-cut chips, and the spring rolls and they were delicious. Highly recommended

A group of 4 of us went for dinner just after lockdown, service was very good and we were made feel very comfortable. Food was really good, we all had starters and mains and just one dessert. All the food was good but the burger...and Vol-au-vents were top notch. Potions sizes were good and reasonably priced. Will be back again.More

We went to Dublin for the St. Patricks Day parade and festivities and ended up being there in Dublin as it was shutting down. We stopped in Nancy Hands for a drink one of our last nights and found a wonderful bar with an owner...that was especially friendly and full of info about Dublin. We went back the next day for dinner which was delicious. Fran treated us as friends and we had a nice evening. The place usually has music there fairly often but due to the virus we missed out on that. I would highly recommend this wonderful place. We definitely will be back there when we make it back to Ireland!More

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.

I assume you mean the pub. Being in Dublin, not much is air conditioned - not needed in a cool climate. But while we were at Nancy Hands we saw no indication of AC
